work quite well for george h. w. bush, attacking michael dukakis' jobs record in massachusetts saying he claimed there was a massachusetts miracle, it wasn't living up to -- to -- to the numbers. same things with bain capital here. if he is running as somebody who create jobs, we found real humans who lost their jobs because of decisions he made. make it so people don't trust him to build the economy and then they are given a choice for president they are toll rating and somebody who can't be trusted to reverse the trend. >> so okay, i want to pick up with something it is kind of an x factor that few people are talking about. you, dave, have in a recent post how the third party can have a major impact even with just a few votes. you cite the elections with both al gore and john mccain. talk about that and how third party candidates can swing the electoral college. >> well, if we are looking at an election where the incumbent is trying to disqualify the challenger, part of that -- people are just going to be dissatisfied with both candidates. in 2008 they liked those candidates n 2004,

, president obama being one, george w. bush being another before him. these are all people who like to get their core people, keep them together, and that's every indication we're getting from the romney campaign is that any changes they do is to add people, give people new titles but not have some huge shake-up and shed their current staff. >> susan, i want you to weigh in on something before i get to doug on this. this is from the boston globe which says, the last thing mitt romney needs is a john kerri moment. the very rich are different than you or me, but there it was, the image of a grinning mitt romney, his wife ann enjoying a perfect sunny day on a jet ski. susan, what about the optics of this vacation? i guess they think it's okay to see him on a family vacation playing thedoting dad, doting grand parent? does this make it harder to relate to the middle class? >> i don't think so. george bush, everyone saw him as a regular guy on the ranch, and then to see kerry on his wind surf was just ridiculous. it makes sense, plus team obama won't be able to use that against him after the pr

years of tax returns in 2000. george w. bush released many years of his tax returns. john kerry also released many, many years. same with john mccain. you just don't run for president and get away with not releasing your returns. now, what i suspect, alex, he might do is he might pull something i have seen in my years as a journalist. other really rich candidates do. they don't pass out copies but they -- invite reporters to come sit in a room and look at it for three hours and can't make copies. you can't make heads or tails of anything. he might try to pull something like that. >> what's inning to me, this is a very intelligent man. released all his tax returns while being vetted by potential vp pick by john mccain many years prior. then have you these four years where he's clearly on the public stage. you would think -- even though people are suggesti ining he ha something to hide, you think he knows better. i keep going back to why aren't you just doing it? i mean, he has been on the public stage and probably had aspirations to run for the presidency four years ago. you know, i m

will depart on thursday to meet with leaders in israel, poland and britain. president george w. bush will not appear at the rnc convention. he supports governor romney but respectfully declined the invitation to go to tampa. >>> on the kmiks front, state unemployment rates were released yesterday. in 27 of the 50 states the unemployment rate rose in june. in the key battleground states, 5 out of 9 had increases, ohio was the sole swing state to see its number improve. it fell by 0.1%. >>> more on the delicate operation under way at the apartment of the colorado movie theater shooter. we have a live report on the investigation and new reaction from witnesses, next. my volt is the best vehicle i've ever driven. i bought the car because of its efficiency. i bought the car because i could eliminate gas from my budget. i don't spend money on gasoline. it's been 4,000 miles since my last trip to the gas station. it's pretty great. i get a bunch of kids waving at me... giving me the thumbs up. it's always a gratifying experience. it makes me feel good about my car. i absolutely love my chev

you try to strike a tone appropriate to the moment. we have seen presidents in the past, george w. bush after 9/11. bill clinton after the oklahoma city bombing do that very effectively and president obama will try to do that again today as he did after gabby giffords was shot more than a year ago. >> i also remember president reagan doing that after the shuttle explosion. these things are indelibly etched into your mind. christina, both the president and mr. romney do have events tomorrow. neither will likely talk gun control any time soon. could or would either candidate bringing it up be possible down the road? >> nothing is impossible. it is unlikely. it is not a debate that these two guys want to have. you have mayor michael bloomberg calling on each of them to resurge on this issue. it is politically difficult for both parties to tackle this. it is something i wouldn't be surprised if congress takes up. there are advocates that have fierce opinions on both sides. even if the debate doesn't change and people feel very entrenched on either side, people want to talk about it. i
